   I was looking at Ted talks and found this one. This Masai boy - Richard Turere wanted to keep lions from killing his family's cows. He rigged up flashing lights that flash around the compound and it works. How is it US Ranchers cannot learn something from him and invent something useful instead of killing wolves? Link over the squiggly

Richard Turere

He's also an amazingly confident speaker in a second language, in front of a huge crowd at that age.

I know many African and other native people's have come up with ways to coexist with predators without killing them in mass slaughter, large guard dogs tend to work for one if you want to go back to basics.

I know one village started using Anatolian Sheep dogs I believe, they let them grow up as puppies with the sheep and so the dogs view the sheep as part of their family and protect them from cheetahs and lions.

There are so many ways to do this, Americans just like to shoot shit I guess.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
